Finally managed to find a museum in this country. It was worth travelling to this city just for the museum. €3 entrance is worth it. The 1900's history is more interesting as there's more than just old coins and flags to look at. Glad to learn more about the Montenegrin identity, especially through the conversation I had with the museum guide who helped me better understand why Montenegro is an ecological state. Thank you for an enlightening conversation and I do hope that Montenegro will do its best to protect its beautiful nature, the beaches and the sea as much as it is willing to protect the mountains. Tourists will still come, just a better and more respectful bunch who can appreciate this beautiful country. The building is nice, the courtyard should be opened to paid visitors too.
BIG museum and art gallery. Great to get some history of Montenegro
